The Classical Studies program offers a broad range of exciting courses in Greek and Roman history, Greek and Roman literature and culture, Greek and Roman art and architecture, Greek philosophy, and in Greek and Latin language. Students normally enter the program by taking HUMA 1100 9.00 or HUMA 1105 9.00 and/or HIST 2100 6.00 and/or LA 1000 6.00 or GK 1000 6.00. (For purposes of meeting program requirements, all foundations courses will count as six credits towards the major or minor.) Students in classical studies are strongly advised to make Greek or Latin a component of their degree program, especially if they are even mildly contemplating graduate studies in classics or ancient history.
